In an effort to make a contribution to the community, DesignHammer Media Group LLC has contributed the development and hosting of a new web site for Independent Animal Rescue, an all-volunteer private non-profit organization that cares for stray, abandoned and abused companion animals in North Carolina’s Research Triangle Region.
The Wake County Public School System has selected DesignHammer to redesign the look and feel of the WCPSS web site.
The Wake County Public School System is made up of more than a hundred schools, some 13,000 teachers and staff, and thousands of volunteers working together to educate the children of Wake County,including Raleigh, Cary, Apex, Zebulon and Wake Forest.
"There is nothing like going through the process yourself to understand the client’s point of view," said Managing Partner David Minton in reference to DesignHammer’s new web site. The new site features visual and interface design by Frank Yonnetti, as well as content and site architecture by David Minton and Robert Weeks.
Features of the new site include redesigned graphics, company news, and a greatly enhanced portfolio with brief case studies.
East Wake High freshman Jeremy Booker spent Groundhog Day shadowing Wake County Public Schools System Webmaster Paul Cory, one of nearly 2000 Wake County students who spent the day following and learning from members of the local work force. Part of his day included a meeting with DesignHammer Managing partner David Minton. Cory thought it would provide for a more well rounded understanding of the industry if Booker was able to meet a web developer from the private sector.
In conjunction with the dedication of its new modern facility, the North Carolina Hillel Foundation sought an updated look for its web presence. DesignHammer took the existing content and wrapped it in a stylish look designed to appeal to students and community members alike.
Features of the redesign include and up-to-date visual "look and feel," text-based headlines and navigation for quick display and easy updating and a stylish month-by-month calendar of events linked to detailed descriptions.
